Saw it last night and it was great! I didn't know what all the hype was about but now I know and can understand. They did a GREAT job I am excited that they won 8 oscars; they were well deserved. If you haven't seen it, SEE IT!
Although some of the writing on the screen got cut off since I had a bootleg version of it - oops- but I could understand the gist of what they were writing. This movie made me really want to go to India. It's like I need to be there, I dont know why I get these urges to go where there is corruption and dangerousness --although that is really anywhere in the world -- I do tend to want to be there too! Weird, I know, but it makes me want to go there and help these children out. Not that me by myself could really do much help, but its the thought that counts. The boyfriend didn't want to watch it because his friend told him it was a chick-flick. Ha! Was it definitely not and he was glad that he ended up watching it!
The kids they picked to act in the movie are so cute; it breaks your heart to see that they have to wheel and deal like that to live.
I am glad about the ending, its kind of a trade off for the kid though; losing someone to gain someone else.
